Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo trolled by Ferencvaros striker who copies his goal celebration but strikes back to equal Lionel Messi record
Cristiano Ronaldo is well-known for his trademark ‘Sii’ celebration but had to watch on as one of his opponents mimicked him in the Champions League.
Juventus were playing Ferencvaros on Tuesday night with the visitors taking a surprise lead in the 19th minute through Myrto Uzuni.
The striker took the opportunity to troll the Portugal legend, though, and performed his trademark jump celebration.
Ronaldo almost certainly wouldn’t have enjoyed that and it took him just 16 minutes to get a goal of his own.
The 35-year-old struck a long range effort into the bottom corner to bring Juventus back level in the match in Turin.
The superstar also equaled yet another Champions League record with that goal. It was his 70th home match he’s scored in, going level with the achievement held by Lionel Messi – who was not in action for Barcelona.
Surprisingly, it was Ronaldo’s first Champions League goal of the season, though it was only his second appearance.
The Italian club had to wait until two minutes into added time at the end of the match to find their winner with former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata grabbing a late goal to earn them the three points.
It booked their place in the knockout stages of the competition but they are still three points behind leaders Barcelona.
